The Arizona Cardinals received the ball first, and despite the Cleveland Browns playing what looked to be pretty solid defense, QB Carson Palmer just had impeccable ball placement en route to an 11-yard touchdown pass to TE Troy Niklas mid-way through the first quarter.

Cleveland only got a first down via penalty before having to punt right back to Arizona. With RB Chris Johnson breaking free for a big run, Cleveland stripped it from him and DL Armonty Bryant returned it to the 9 yard line. On 3rd-and-goal, QB Josh McCown whipped a pass to WR Brian Hartline for a 10-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 7-7. Cleveland's defense then forced a three-and-out on their next series.

On 3rd-and-short, McCown then hit RB Duke Johnson on a quick slant and he broke free down inside the 10 yard line for a big gain. Cleveland is about to score again as we head to the second quarter.
